As part of the exhibition KEDEMKODEMKADIMA,” the CCA is pleased to present The Interview, an action by Public Movement. In this work we go back to the very first time the military speaks with us, about us: the personal conversation” in the first summons of the draft process. The military performs itself in many ways, and in this case it is embodied in the figure of a young female soldier.

The model of The Interview was developed in 1955 as the major tool through which the military studies the emotional landscape of each potential soldier. In the past sixty years, a growing military archive has been collecting the psychological profiles of every Israeli male citizen, a state-owned emotional deposition.

Public Movement recruited a new cell of women who served in the IDF as interviewers, and together they reactivate the The Interview as a performative model. In The Interview Public Movement stages this military model in a civil environment and thus invites the public to practice the artistic event as an arena of knowledge exchange.
